Mecha Knights: Nightmare is an exciting mecha game slated to be released in July. It was originally due to be released in May, but due to the release of a larger mecha game also coming out at the same time, the developers decided to put it off to another month so their release wouldn’t get lost in the shuffle.
Mecha Knights: Nightmare features 20, fully-voiced campaigns. Each campaign is unique, and some of them have different gameplay mechanics to help change things up for the player. In one campaign for example, you might have air support you can call to help rain down suppressing fire. In another, you’ll be tasked with defending a specific point.
Although the story isn’t well known at this point, the developer mentions it’s a post-apocalyptic world where mecha knights are being summoned to help fight a range of horrors besetting the world. Cross Resident Evil and Armored Core, and you’ll have the game the developer is aiming for. The player finds themselves in the role of a mecha knight pilot, and follows the story of the pilot as they struggle to defeat these monsters and save the world.
One of the things that first jump out is that the graphics for this game are very well done. Both the mechs and enemies are detailed, and the backgrounds are fairly good, if somewhat repetitive in available views. Some of the fighting sequences shown in developer trailers and gameplay sneak previews show amazing special effects, but sound has not yet been shown at this time.
One of the biggest and best features is that the mech controlled by the player is entirely customizable. There are over 100 different ways the mech can be customized, so that your mech will suit your particular fighting style. This includes up to 4 main weapons, all of which can be fired at the same time, and 4 additional slots that can be fitted with other items. These items include things like extra armor, guns, or even mines.
One more system slot allows you control over passive skills, such as the ability to summon air support or weapons cooling systems. The result is a mech that responds to your favorite play style, and gives you more control over the success of your missions. At this time it doesn’t look like color or style changes are available as an option, but the number of choices available is extremely impressive.
It’s always difficult to gauge how good a game will be before it is fully open to play. Although right now Mecha Knights: Nightmare’s playability is relatively secret, it has all the elements of being a very good game.
It’s clear that the developer is passionate about mech style games, and has put in a lot of effort to making this game exciting and fun to play. If you’re a fan of mechs, this game may be worth saving on your steam account.
